As the longtime host of Jeopardy, Alex Trebek is known for being a prickly customer, especially when he doesn’t quite understand what the heck some of the show’s contestants are talking about.
Case in point: during the “get to know the contestants” segment on a recent episode of Jeopardy, a female contestant talked up her passion for nerdcore hip-hop, an interest that Trebek was quick to point out he’s never heard of and that it “doesn’t sound like fun.”
After the contestant explained to Trebek that nerdcore hip-hop involves “people that identify as nerdy rapping about the things they love: video games, science fiction … having a hard time meeting romantic partners … it’s really catchy and fun.”
Trebek’s response? Well, words truly can’t do it justice. This man is one cold customer!
